Willkommen in Deutschland
Welcome to Germany
As Hamburg becomes more and more attractive for cruise ship calls a second cruise terminal will be added in their plannings.
So some cruise ships (mostly Germans but in 2010 also MSC POESIA (after her drydock stay) and CELEBRITY CONSTELLATION (before her drydock stay) will be diverted to Altona instead and we be handled at the former Ferry Terminal for the Harwich-bound ferries.
Nicest way will be to go on the port ferry boats of line 61 or 62 which leave from the Landing Stages (Landungsbrücken) and get off here:
When you reach the street level you can see here how much more you need to walk.
In future you will find here a real dedicated cruise terminal which is under construction.
So far you are still using the former passenger hall for the England ferries.
You need to get to the train station (from Hamburg Airport by train or bus) Altona and change here to bus stop F for Bus 383 which does not go on Sundays.
You should get off from the bus at "Fährterminal"
From here you see the way to walk to the former Ferry Terminal.
In this districts there are now many new restaurants. But before you go on your ship you might want to have a snack. This little fish snack bar is also open on Sundays. You get great fish soup or rolls with fish.
Have a good time in Hamburg
